A changing ecosystem within the Printing Machinery and Equipment market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Reproduction Equipment. Suppliers expect an increase in OPEX from rising prices of paper and ink which has resulted from rising input costs and to some extent, from shortening supply. Still, declining use of paper and intense competition will offset this incremental cost.Availability of mobile print solutions where a buyer's employees can use any mobile device to send a document for printing from a remote location has transformed the procurement decisions within overall print management category.Many large and mid-sized companies, especially from legal, financial, healthcare and real estate sectors are still heavily reliant on paper. Off late, there is a growing concern on security of documents - whether printed or stored digitally on a connected printing device. To address this concern, suppliers are coming forward with solutions that offer print and document security and monitoring services.
It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Reproduction Equipment. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers. For example, Engage suppliers that can offer digital print outputs in different dimensions to help increase the visual appeal of printed materials. Service providers should be capable of offering a wide range of dimensional digital print outputs, such as pop-up cubes and multi-dimensional shapes that can expand, fold, and explode, as this increases the visual appeal of the printed product.Buyers should compare critical capabilities of suppliers based on security policies regarding materials provided, types of printers used, print color guarantees and TAT and onboard those that can offer a one-stop solution.Buyers can use standard scorecards to evaluate service providers and offer necessary comments to rationalize the given scores. This will help document the decision-making process.
